I am so, so, so pleased to finally have this quilt top done!! It's been a real trial for me to finish all those blocks. In the beginning I thought, "big deal, it's sixteen blocks". But then I learned that piecing a block is an all day event. I'm not very big on things that take me all day. I like to plan my day so that there is plenty to do, but I don't have to rush down to wash the dishes minutes before Jake gets home from work. But anyways, I worked through it, and here it is: My Fireworks quilt top!!
The whole top is made from Lizzy House's Constellations line. That white, that may appear to be solid, is the actually the print with stars all over. I agonized over the placement of these blocks. Seriously. The evening after I finished all the blocks Jake and I sat down on our formal room floor and laid them out. We switched them around and talked and then got them to a pretty good arrangement. The next morning I spent another hour rearranging. I made some concessions on how I wanted the arrangement to be, but I changed the things that I knew it would definitely bother me. So, this is what I landed on.
I wouldn't say it's completely perfect, but I do love it and I am excited to quilt and get it finished up!
Well, happy Friday! It is sure a great day for a finish!
